MANCHESTER - Four shootings in five weeks, and it is tough to track down a link between them.
Every week it seems, Manchester police are out in the city investigating yet another shooting.
Wednesday morning a person arrived with a gun shot wound at Elliot Hospital, and just last week there were back-to-back shootings on South Street.
Police have made one arrest and believe the shootings could be gang related.
Alice Meines, who has lived on South Street for almost 20 years, is almost used to the shootings.
“There were shootings before and drug dealers before, and I personally don't feel endangered,” Meines said.
But not all residents feel the same as Meines.
For Tyvon Watson, no two shootings are alike.
“People just want to pop off because they feel tough, you know,” he said.
Police told NH1 News that two of the four shootings have been connected to drugs.
One shooting in particular, on Parker and Winter streets, led them to one of Manchester's largest drug busts.
Residents of all ages, including 15-year-old Sabrina LeDuc, are playing a waiting game with the neighborhood.
“It could end somebody's life. It may be an accident but it could end somebody's life,” LeDuc said.
“I only fear God," Watson said. "That's how it's supposed to be right?"
“Yes we deal with it, welcome to the ghetto,” LeDuc said.
